Mashnee Island sits on the end of Buzzards Bay on the Cape Cod side. The island is connected by land with a Dike built by the Army Corp of Engineers around the turn of the century. The Island has approximately ninety homes of which one- third are year- round and the remainder seasonal. The Island provides swimming on the Phinneys Cove side, along the dike, Sea clamming, kayaking, tubing and windsurfing are just a few of the activities you will see during the course of your stay. Walking the island and the dike are favorite pastimes of visitors and residents. Bring your bike to ride the canal or take a trip to the market.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Purchased house as a 2nd home and found it was an ideal rental property with a growing active family. Have always increased value of property with annual capital improvements. ie. new roof, inground pool, pool house etc.

Why the Owner Chose Bourne, Bourne, MA, USA:
This property is located as far as one can drive to the southern most point of the Cape Cod Canal, on the Cape side. After you go over the bridge you have a series of lefts and rights, snaking you into a hidden treasure, You may not want to leave with the resort type back yard.Stay on site or take a day trip to Marthas Vineyard, or go into Boston for a game at Fenway and see the Bosox play.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
House is on double lot with plenty of sun throughout the day. Traffic is always a problem on the Cape but you are literally 12 minutes from being on Cape and relaxing on the property. Easy on/easy off!
